Microdermabrasion

at our clinic in Knightsbridge, London

Microdermabrasion is a safe and controlled treatment used for skin complaints such as acne and acne scarring, dull and tired skin, pigmentation, blemishes and the effects of ageing skin (including wrinkles and fine lines). During treatment, your specialist will target problems areas on the face and body using a headpiece; intensely exfoliating and resurfacing the skin using non-allergenic crystals that remove the outermost layers of dead skin cells.

Frequently Asked Questions for Microdermabrasion

  • Does Microdermabrasion hurt?

    Microdermabrasion is virtually pain free as the crystals are hard enough to disrupt and remove the dead skin cells that leave the skin looking dull and tired however, they are small enough to not cause unnecessary and excessive damage to the skin.

    Where on my body can I have Microdermabrasion?

    Microdermabrasion is suitable for most areas of the body including the face, neck and chest.

    What is the post treatment advice?

    After microdermabrasion, it is important to protect your newly resurfaced skin from damage that can be caused by UVA and UVB ray exposure. We recommend wearing an SPF daily to protect your skin and to prolong the results from treatment.
